  • Character: Playful

Dylan was confiscated in another state when he was just a few weeks old. He was malnourished, hardly able to lift his tiny head and not healthy enough for travel. When Dylan arrived, he was clinging to a stuffed animal and rocking -- baby monkeys need mother monkeys. Dylan stayed at a local zoo until he was well enough to travel. Luckily for Dylan he was welcomed into another group of monkeys at Jungle Friends. Monkers, a young adult, took Dylan in as her own; she even carried Dylan on her back and brought him down to us when it was time for his bottle. Dylan enjoys outlandish rough and tumble play with his new-found monkey friends.
